The primary focus of her research is traslational research in gynaecological cancers, in particular cervical and endometrial cancer.

She has led research into the impact of treatment for cervical pre-invasive and early invasive cervical disease on reproductive outcomes and the clinical use of HPV biomarkers in personalising the management of women with abnormal findings at screening.

She has an interest in the role of obesity and metabolic disorders in endometrial tumorigenesis.
